According to Transport Canada statistics, more fatal car collisions happen during summer than any other time of the year.1 While most people would assume that winter’s snow and ice cause more accidents, the data indicates that warmer months pose a more serious risk.
A number of factors could contribute to increased fatal car collisions during the summer months.
- More teenagers are on the road because school is out. Their inexperience behind the wheel could be causing an increase in accidents.
- When the weather is nice, people are more inclined to travel by car. More people on the road increases the risk of collisions.
- Unfortunately, people still drink and drive. Summertime provides more opportunities for people to get together for a backyard barbecue or lakeside celebration and then make the devastating decision to drive home.
- Summer temperatures can affect your car, causing tire blowouts or overheating, which can lead to fatal car collisions.
